Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da is a song credited to Lennon–McCartney, but written by Paul McCartneyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_McCartney and released by The Beatles on their 1968 album The Beatleshttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Beatles ( also referred to as The White Album ). It was released as a single that same year in many countries, but not in the United Kingdom, nor in the United States until 1976.
Paul McCartneyhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_McCartney wrote the song around the time that highlife and reggae were beginning to become popular in Britain. The tag line "ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, bra" was an expression that Nigerian conga player Jimmy Scott-Emuakpor, an acquaintance of McCartney, used.
The song is in the key of B flat and written in 4/4. The alternative version on Anthology 3 is in the key of A major.
My version is in the ukulele friendly key of G.

Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
